Despite working in wedding world I’ve got a little cynical streak so when I recently met Leanne, a friend of a friend who happens to be a ‘Wedding Planner’ I went a bit Jeremy Clarkson on her. Hey, I work with cars you know…I’m entitled. I’d formulated the opinion that ‘Wedding Planners’ were for celebs and madmen. Perhaps it’s because deep down I’m a just a frugal and sensible Yorkshire lass.
‘Oh, and what sort of clients do you have?’ I said, when what I secretly wanted to say was ‘Do you work with lunatics who enjoy setting fire to wads of cash?’
But it’s quite the opposite it seems. Using a wedding planner can save you cash… She told me that after her fees she’d saved her last client the princely sum of £1200 . On the subject of fees, how much do you think it costs to hire a planner? Personally I didn’t have a clue.
